After strongly preaching how hard he would stand up to China and then failing to do so, trump is falling all over himself admiring their leader.
What a great man he is, right Trumpies?

Question for those of you: which one is great, trump or Xi?

If I had a drachma for every time I said, "What a ------- idiot", in reference to Trump, I'd be able to --------- Croesus and Mammon with a purse-full of staters so hard that they'd both be crapping obols for hours.

This from David Brooks yesterday:

"The Republican senators greeted Trump on Capitol Hill saw a president so repetitive and rambling, some thought he might be suffering from early Alzheimer's. But they know which way the wind is blowing. They gave him a standing ovation."

--Some people might call him the king of China."

So what? He's consolidating his position as a dictator. I would've have called him the new Chairman Mao, complete with a cult of personality.

""[The department] will also help universities around the country incorporate Xi Thought into their textbooks and introduce it to their classrooms, as well as into students' minds," the Beijing Daily said.

Liu Wei, the university's head, told the newspaper: "The establishment of Xi Jinping Thought ... is of epoch-making significance." Liu, who will also be head of the newly-established unit, described its foundation as "a responsibility entrusted by the time to the People's University of China."

A second centre is reportedly being set up in Tianjin, a city about 70 miles southeast of Beijing. According to E-North, a local news website, that department opened on Wednesday at the Tianjin University of Finance and Economics and will focus on the "ideological and political education" of local students. "

Sounds like an SJW dream.

That's actually more like what the koch brothers are doing- Donating to colleges who agree to teach fake trickle down economics.

What the hell does that have to do with Social Justice Warriors?

It's exactly what Koch Bros. do:

The Charles Koch Foundation (and in the case of Kansas schools, the Fred and Mary Koch Foundation) provides grants to nearly 270 U.S. colleges and universities for "projects that explore how the principles of free enterprise and classical liberalism promote a more peaceful and prosperous society".

And the Koch Bros go further, exerting control over personnel decisions:

In 2011, the Charles G. Koch foundation made a grant of $1.5 million to Florida State University (FSU) in exchange for allowing the foundation, via an advisory committee,[96] to approve hiring decisions in the university's economics department for a program that promotes "political economy and free enterprise".

A new Chairman Mao in China and all the commie-coddlers can deflect to is the Koch Brothers. Sad. Pathetic.

China's Communist Party on Tuesday elevated President Xi Jinping to the same exalted status as the nation's founding father, Mao Zedong, by writing his name and ideas into the party constitution.

Putting quote marks around a sentence and Obama's name after it does not make it a real quote

Trump doesn't know the difference between a king and a president.

He also doesn't know the difference between ruling and governing

Obama's Memorial Day gaffe parade
By Clarice Feldman
The Democrats' genius front runner continued his non-stop gaffe parade yesterday. Famously he hailed America's "fallen heroes" noting he saw some in the audience.

On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes -- and I see many of them in the audience here today -- our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.

Less famously he placed his uncle then serving in the US military at the liberation of Auschwitz :
